In @ Queens.!!

Made it to Queens MBA for Science and Technology.
It has been rated as #1 in International MBA (Non US) and feels good to know that I made it .
But rankings don't matter much to me. I believe in best fit.

The real confusion begins in the next few days.
The waitlist at ISB haunts me. I can't end up paying the acceptance money for all the schools and keep hoping that ISB will pick me towards March end.

Duh! I hate the day when they told me that I have been Waitlisted.Itz a sick feeling that raises questions about one's abilities and makes him think every moment -What went wrong.?

Itz back to decision making process now -MISM vs MBA.
USA vs Canada.

What is ur take guyz..? Please comment.
Next few days will be spent speaking to Queen's students!!

I have to also arrange for the official transcript and degree statement from my college in Bangalore which is refusing to give the transcipts without the originals! Damn ppl!

Congrats. The way your interview went..I knew it was coming.MISM Vs MBA...well! it really depends upon your goals. What you wish to accomplish in future. IMHO, MISM is a safe bet...CMU brand name will carry u thru wherever you go. I dont hv much knowledge abt Queen's so cant say abt their brand name. A look at their placement statistics would give you a fair idea as to what kinda reputation they carry. How good is their reputation in the US, lest you prefer to work in Canada. Lots of thing to ponder. Good Luck!!!.

Ah! Here you go...Congrats. I wasn't surprised to see the admit after reading your interview experience.

Now, the questions. MIS vs MBA, Queen's Vs Carnegie, it's about what you want. If you think MBA will help you reach your long term goals, take up MBA. Queen's is a top ranked universit outside US. But we can't go by rankings. My only concern about queen's is the placement. We will chat in the weekend..

Congrats! Well, I have heard from reliable sources that Queen's is better that CMU MISM in many aspects. But, I guess other factors also come into picture. Like the currency u pour in. Have u got an aid for Queens? I guess it costs around 60000 can Dollars. So be prepared to pour in money or pick up a loan. But since u got scholarship at CMU MISM, I guess it would be a safer bet. What say MIB?

CMU will open the doors for you in the US and Canada. I'm not sure Queens is that well known in the US, even if it's highly ranked overseas.

Best of luck!

A difficult decision. Weigh the odds carefully. Stop waiting for ISB and move on. Sometimes the most difficult things to let go carry the least value for you. :-)

Sad .. that you got waitlisted on ISB. I have applied with second round.

Just wondering abt your profile ( I didnt go thro whole of your blog)

Going thro your pages, i wonder.. have i made mistake by not applying in US schools.
